Description: This post and the three following are seriously religious and have profound theological significance and I can only excuse that by protesting that God must have been wanting to read some satire or else She wouldn't have created these humans don't you reckon?
The Little Book Of Ultimate Destiny -------------------------------------------
The dead on the lands shall match the stars in number and only grass and trees bury their bones, for one family is living where a million lived before and it shall be seven thousand years again until seven billion shall die in seven years and the cities descend once more beneath the seven seas ! Yea verily and stuff like that !
Well that's probably true but I must object that you tend to put an irritatingly negative spin on it.
Glad to see you are still alive and writing. But what is this that you are writing.
As a devout, yea evangelical, almost messianic atheist myself I must naturally take a little offence at your religious content. I have always felt that both religion and philosophy (and politics) are sorry subjects for poetry. Why call it a poem? Why not offer it up as a sermon, then we are not in the least tempted to read it?
THe main reason that religion is unsuitable for poetry is a linguistic one. When we write about god we tend to use long latinate ( and hence unpoetical words) whereas when we write about dog we tend to use short Germanic and much more poetic vocabulary.
However that would be a challenge to write a religious poem in Anglo-saxon English. Shouldn't be too difficult with a lot of smiting and wrath and yea verilys.
LMAO. Language Mediations And Operativ(nuanc)e.
I feel rosetta stoned and droned out between the scream and shout of supporting causes when causation supports itself, but i am a scientist.
